I was struck by the perfect conical shape of this tree, so I whipped out my infrared camera and took several variations of it poised against the dramatically cloudy sky.

SONY NEX-C3 1/160 second F/14.0 ISO 200 52 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

The IR has produced an exceptional image with excellent detail and a marvelous sky. This is an impressive image.

@Jeff & Pat: Yes, at first glance an IR with lots of grass can look like a snow scene.

Perfectly-shaped, indeed which also showcases beautiful textures!! I can't help but see this as a winterscape scene. Excellent processing!
